It has been observed previously that the number of iterations required to derive good model parameter values used by RANSAC-like model estimators is too optimistic. We present the derivation of an analytical formula that allows the calculation of the sufficient limit of iterations needed to obtain good parameter values with the prescribed probability for(More)
Fusion Engines in general have to handle manifold types of information from different sensors. In particular, in urban terrain such diverse sensor systems as e.g. electro-optical cameras, thermal cameras, small ground radars, acoustical sensors, and chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear (CBRN) sensors can contribute information. Several approaches(More)
The detection of motion is an essential preprocessing step in many vision based systems. While showing good performance in the visible or the infrared spectrum, some of the state-of-the-art background subtraction methods are quite sensitive to a change in the spectral range. In this paper, the robustness of various background subtraction algorithms is not(More)
A set of trackers operating on thermal video data is investigated. The contribution focuses on marine scenarios with ships that may perform maneuvers such as turning or occluding each other. The tracker methods are not original, and they are not improved here, only their parameters were adjusted in order to fit the scenario. This contribution focuses on the(More)
